If you read nothing else: Get on your Xbox 360 and vote for Castle Crashers! More info below.

Earthshine has suggested that everyone go to this NASA page and enter "Newgrounds" as a suggested name for Node 3 of the International Space Station! Let's see if we can top the list of suggested names!

While you're at it, DIGG Saturday Morning Watchmen.

Edmund McMillen is getting a new Wacom tablet and wants to give away his old one to someone here on NG. To pick the lucky fellow, he's having an art contest where you have to draw him naked!

Behold: The Draw Edmund Naked Art Contest.

Also check out the site for Edmund's upcoming Wii game: Super Meat Boy!

Don't forget to vote for Best of February if you're on the panel, and remember Pico Day is on April 30th!

Some Flash you probably missed this week:

Finally this is a CALL TO ARMS for Xbox 360 owners. I pretty much copy and pasted this from Emil's post on thebehemoth.com:

Voting has officially started for the annual Xbox LIVE Arcade Awards. Castle Crashers has been nominated for the following categories:

Best Overall Game
Best Original Game
Best Co-operative Multiplayer Game
Best Graphics

Voting lasts until Tuesday, March 10th. Head over to the Xbox Dashboard and under the Marketplace tab there will be an option to vote. This entire process is judged entirely by YOU!

I don't think I'll be able to visit the art forum again after seeing the contest.
But other than that, good luck to Castle Crashers.

I assumed that Zekey's flash was frontpaged, but I guess it wasn't. That's a shame.

I haven't been on Xbox live for months, I'm too afraid to get addicted to a game so that I wont get anything useful done. I will take the risk though and vote on CC for ya :)
